  • 1. COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN OVERBALANCED AND UNDER BALANCED OIL DRILLING METHODS

    » ABSTRACT The technique used worldwide while drilling is known as overbalanced drilling. Which is defined as the drilling process where the hydrostatic pressure used exceeds the formation pressure. This is done with the main purpose of “killing” the well. However, there are numerous problems that accompany overbalanced drilling. Such problems are differential pipe sticking, loss of circ...Continue Reading »

  • 7. PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A FLOATING PRODUCTION STORAGE AND OFFLOADING VESSEL

    » CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1 Background of the StudyA floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) is a vessel employed by oil and gas companies to both process and store hydrocarbons in offshore fields. They are made up of two parts: the topside and the hull. The topside produces and off loads crude oil and gas, and the hull, like a big tank, stores the produced oil. (John et al., 2009)...Continue Reading »
